About This Camp

Discover the world of germs, diseases and how they're spread.  How can you protect yourself from getting sick? What is PPE and is it all the same?.  Are all germs harmful?  Are you a handwashing expert?   You may think you're an expert in germs after COVID, but let's find out. 

What is a cell? What's the difference between a viral infection and a bacterial infection?  How do immunizations keep us healthy?  What are allergies and why do some people need to carry epi pens?  DNA-it’s the unique blueprint that makes you-you but how much of that blueprint was used to make a mouse, chimpanzee or even your best friend?  You may have a lot more in common than you realize!  Genetics and DNA, what is the probability that you'll have the same eye color as your Mom?
